Tantalus

Just a list of soon(ish) releases I'm trying to get my dirty mitts on.
1Beach House
Bloom


Pretty sure this is streaming someplace, but for now I'm content with the multi-track preview I heard on a local radio station. Just gorgeous.
2mewithoutYou
Ten Stories


Took a preposterously long time for this band to grow on me. I'm pretty sure Catch for Us the Foxes gathered dust on my shelf for a good two years after I listened to it once. I'm not proud of this. But now I can't get enough of them.
3Tenacious D
Rize of the Fenix


Eh. Who knows? Like "The Roadie" video, though--but that might just be my residual pangs for K-Powers.
4 The Walkmen
Heaven


Loved Lisbon, been meaning to explore outwards for too long.
5Trioscapes
Separate Realities


Yes, I know it's already out. I've yet to actually pick it up.
6 TesseracT
Perspective


Could be cool? Also, I'm hoping a bunch of people accidentally discover these guys as a result of ill-informed post-Avengers Google searches.
7Sun Kil Moon
Among the Leaves


Kozelek has yet to release anything that I've not been floored by. Some may find his slurred mumbles and nigh constant fingerpicking tiresome after a while, but I, for one, am still falling for it after all these years.
8Shadows Fall
Fire from the Sky


So these guys kind of fell off my radar for a good while, and I'm not even sure about the current lineup--which is strange, because back in their heyday, they were one of the more consistent NWOAHM acts.
912 Stones
Beneath the Scars


Speaking of off the radar. A consistent (and consistently underrated, which may be part of why I like them) hard rock band. Maybe this will pacify me until that long-fabled Revis comeback actually materializes.
10Sigur Ros
Valtari


There is no way this is anything beneath incredible.
11The Temper Trap
The Temper Trap


I still listen to Conditions pretty regularly. Hopefully this will have its predecessor's longevity.
12Fear Factory
The Industrialist


Mechanize was pretty forgettable, in my opinion, but these guys seem to work better with concept albums, so...
13Japandroids
Celebration Rock


About damn time, fellas.
14 Metric
Synthetica


Ditto, except with a non-gender-exclusive interpretation of 'fellas.'
15Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Here


7,000 dirty hippies, making music that you can't help but like.
16Devin Townsend Project
By a Thread


Got the Contain Us Box Set on the cheap, can hopefully do the same for this epic musical monstrosity of melodious mayhem and menacing mellowness. Ain't alliteration a gas, gang?
